I'm getting the following error trying to integrate regex into a transform that previously used concat and string searching as it's much more flexible.

The error is:-

C:\>java -jar saxon9he.jar -o Result.xml text.xml regextime.xslt

Error on line 22 column 5 of regextime.xslt:
   SXXP0003: Error reported by XML parser: The value of attribute "select" associated with an
   element type "null" must not contain the '<' character.
Failed to compile stylesheet. 1 error detected.

I just can't see what I've done wrong, so am hoping you kind folks can put me on the (x)path again.

XML file:

hi Neil,

you forgot to close the select attribute with a double quote.
